icon_with_textThe zanier the sportsball action is, the more we like it. This pretty much explains why our all-seeing eye has been all sorts of over Football Heroes. It's a throwback sort of game that channels Mutant League and Tecmo Superbowl, but adds a bunch of new fancy RPG trimmings on top of that. As you play, you can level up your guys' abilities and earn a bunch of special moves, each of which seems splendidly stupid. It's a neat game.

Anyway, I'm bringing this up because of that headline. Creator Run Games has just released a new teaser that shows off a bunch of special moves and some more on-the-field action. Check it out:

We're hearing the game will see a release this fall, so buckle up.

    Looks like we may finally get a fun football game on iOS.

    • ODMay

      EA can use the graphics they used in Madden13 Social and make a mobile NCAAF game. That would be the best football game on iOS (but without all that social card trading stuff)

  • ImJPaul

    This just reminded me of how angry I was when FIFA 13 was premium and Madden got freemium/asynchronous multiplayered the eff up. Damn EA.

    Anyways, in related news....this looks...interesting? I guess?

  • Mrwubbs

    Niccaz are doing MK moves on the field??? Oh I'm def getting this!!

  • Derprozess

    Oh, that kind of Football...

    Reminds me of my Brutal Sports Football playing days on the Amiga.

    Like the look of it.

  • BaltimoreDave

    looks fun as hell

    I was looking forward to this until I saw the trailer. Thought it was gonna be a straight up Tecmo type game. I'm not down with all the goofy moves. I mean, it looks nice and all, but just not my cup of tea.

    Sports games have seemed less than spectacular on iOS. However, adventure, board, and card games have seen a major resurgence. Hopefully somebody can come along and give a big boost to sports games on this platform.

      As a non-sports fan, this game looks awesome. Not sure why the 'super moves' are being described as 'stupid' -- they seem astounding, overpowered, silly, unique, unusual, strange, surprising -- but stupid?
      Dig out a thesaurus, Brad, and use better fitting words!

      • joaquin_ondamoon

        Well, he did say 'splendidly stupid', so I guess that wasn't really meant as a knock.

  • bobbstermang

    I've been waiting very impatiently for this.

  • wharfrat1979

    This looks great. However the defense power moves need to balance out the offense or it is just going to be stupid.

  • whitestatic

    Reminds me a little of Bill Lambeer's Combat Basketball for the NES.

  • 28monkeys

    Hope there is a balance system in game to control super moves. Also this definitely better than real soccer 2013 different sports but still better outlook

  • Garbagemaster

    I've been waiting on this game...now I'm not so sure. I hope there's an option to play without the silly "super moves."
    Can't we just have a really good football game?

    • MMarzola

      There will definitely be ways to play Football Heroes without special moves, but the game is way more fun/exciting with them 🙂

  • andrew9oh7

    As a huge fun of mutant league football,I'm wayyyy excited for this game

  • AjayP
